Ingredients

  • 450g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 284ml pot buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp milk

  3. Transfer to a lightly floured baking sheet, brush with the remaining milk and bake for 12-15 mins until golden and well risen. Serve with clotted cream and jam.
